TridiPanel Spec

Description

The shop-fabricated 3D panels consist of a three dimensional welded wire space frame utilizing a truss concept for stress transfer and stiffness. Each surface of the wire space frame has a 2 inch square welded mesh pattern of longitudinal and transverse wires of the same diameter (gauge 11, 12.5 or 14).

In dividually welded internal strut wires or diagonals extend through the panel core between each surface. These galvanized strut wires are welded continuously in the required spacing so they form, with the welded wire fabric, into a triangulated truss system which greatly increases the panel strength.

When welded in place, these strut wires pierce through a modified expanded polystyrene core placed between the two layers of welded wire fabric, maintain the required distance apart and provide the shear transfer between the panel surfaces.

The modified expanded polystyrene core (minimum density 0.9 pounds per cubic foot) is held 1/2" or 3/4" from each face of the wire frame to permit the wire to be embedded in an application of approximately 1" - 2" thick concrete mixture with 2,500 psi minimum.

Scope

A. Furnish all labor, materials, equipment, supervision and services necessary for the installation of the TridiPanel System in accordance with these specifications and applicable drawings.

The 3D panels shall be manufactured only by TridiPanel System, and marketed only by TridiPanel System or their authorized representatives.

B. Fully coordinate the 3D panel building system with other structural, mechanical, electrical and architectural components of the building structure.
